how knit 2 things at once on 2 circs - cast on
ive been trying to make soem fingerless mittens for my dd who is 2.5 so i cast on 32 stitches and using 2 circs have been knitting in the round with a 2x2 rib pattern.

i was wondering how to do 2 at the same time on 2 circs. i know this is possible as i see references to it about sock kniting. i can also visualse how to knit them in the round after i have got started. however i cant visualse how i would cast on and get everything set up so i can knit in the round both at the same time.

does anyone know of a good tutorial or video. i did look at silvers sock class but just got confused.

The book by Antje Gillingham, Knitting Circles Around Socks, has excellent photographs of how to CO and set up your needles for knitting two socks at a time. I know that you're knitting mittens, but the set-up would be the same. I learned 2 on 2 knitting using this book.

Melissa Morgan-Oakes has done a wonderful book on kniting two socks at the same time on one long circular needle (40"). I've used her method to do leg warmers, sleeves, fingerless gloves and so on. Anything you need two of you can use this method for and it's WONDERFUL. I found it much easier to work with just the one needle rather than two.

I think you might like this once you get familiar with it!

Hope this helps!
